AN EMIGRANT TRAIN.
A night in a western emigrant
train is thus described by R. L.
Stovons, in Z.onyniait's Magazine.
I lir been suffering in ray
heftlth a good denl all the way;
and at Inst, whether 1 was ex
hausted hy my complaint or pois.
oned in some wayside eating
house, the evening we left Lara
mie, 1 fell sick outright. That
was a night which I shall not
readily forget. The lamps did
not go out; each made a faint
shining in its own neighborhood,
and the shadows were confounded
together in the long hollow box of
the cur. The sleepers lay in un
easy attitudes; here two chums
alongside, Hat upon their backs
like dead folks; there a man
sprawling on the floor, with his
face upon his arm; there another
half seated, with his head and
shoulders unon the bench. The
most passive were continually and
rousrhlv shaken bv the movement
of the train; others stirred, turned
or stretched out their arms like
children; it was surprising how
many groaned and murmured- in
their sleep; and as I passed to and
fio, stepping across the prostrate,
and caught now a snore now a
ras. now a half-formed word, it
gave me a measure of the worth-
lessness 01 rest in that unresting
vehicle. Although it was cold,
was obliged to open my window;
for the degradation of the air soon
became intolerable to one who was
awake and using the full supply o
life. Outside in a glimmering
night, 1 saw the black, amorphous
hills shoot by unwcariedly
into our wake. TJiev that long
for morning have never longed for
it more earnestly than I, and yet
when dnv came, it was to shine
upon the same broken unsightly
quarter of the world. Miles upon
miles, and not a tree, a bird or
river. Only down the long, ster
ile canyons, the tram shot hooting,
and awoke the resting echo. That
train was the one piece of
life in all the deadly land; it was
the one actor, the one spectacle
fit to be observed in this paralysis
of man and nature. And when I
think how the railroad has been
pushed through this un watered
wilderness and haunt of savage
tribes, and now will bear an immi
grant for some 12 from the At
lantic to the Golden Gate; how
at each stage of the construction,
roaring impromptu cities, full of
gokl and lust and death, sprang
up and then died away again, and
are now but wavside stations in the
desert; how in these uncouth
places pigtailed Chinese pirates
worked side by side with border
ruffians and broken men from
Europe, talking together in ;
mixed dialect, mostly oaths, gam b
ling, drinking, quarrelling and
murdering like wolves; how the
illumed hereditary lord of all
America heard, in this last fastness
the scream of the "bad medicine
wagon," charioting his foes; and
then, when I go on to remember
that all this epical turmoil was
conducted by gentlemen in frock
coats, and with a view to nothing
more extraordinary than a fortune
and a subsequent visit to Paris, it
seoms to me, 1 own, as if this rail
way was the typical achievement
of the age in which we live, as if it
brought together, inio one plot, all
the ends of theTorld and all the
degrees of social rank, and offered
to some great warrior the busiest,
the most extended and the most
varied .subiect of an enduring
r.. r .
Uiterary work. It it be romance
if it be contrast, if it be heroism
that we rcauire, what was iroy to
An object lesson in the trans
mutation of virtues is conveyed in
this paragraph from an eHiange
"Tennyson can take a worthless
sheet of paper, and by writing a
poem on it make it worth 5,000.
That's genius. Vanderbilt can
write a few words on a sheet, and
make it worth 5,000,000. That's
capital. The UnitedWstates can
take an ounce and a quarter of
gold, -and stamp upon it an 'eagle
bird' and 'twenty cURara.' That's
monev. rue mecnanic can iau
the material worth $5, and make
it into a watch worth 100. That's
skill. The merchant can take an
article worth twenty-five cents
and sell it for SI. That's business.
A lady can purchase a very com
fortable bonnet for 10, but she
prefers to pay $100. That's, fool

ten hours a day and shovels out
three or four tons of earth for $2.
Boys of the old Hind.
"When any man who has been a
boy himself attempts to put on
dignity and take the hoys of the
present day across his journalistic
knee because the' indulge m
"idiotic enthusiasm," he starts the
Irish in us, and the red hair snaps
like stroking the fur of a cat the
wrong way. J-i2t tne euiior so in
clined look back twenty-five years
and think of the deviltry that was
going on among the boys at that
time, and compare it with the
quiet of to-day. Twenty-five years
ago boys never thought of paying
to go to a show, but crawled up
to the window on boards, and got
in, and-the audience could consid- j
er itself m luck if they didn't:
raise Hie root. l tic ooys oi a
quarter of a century ago were reg
ular cowboys compared with your
truly good boys of the present
da'. Why, man, don't you re
member when a Sunday morning
in summer would have seemed
tame indeed if the people on the
war to church did not find a pro
cession of fifty wagons on Main
street, placed there the night be
fore by the "boys." Don't you
remember how every wagon con
tained a crockcr' crate, with a.
dog inside, and each cage labeled
with the name of some rare ani
mal caught in the jungles of Afri
ca or lassoed on the plains of
Venezuela by Indians. Of course
your great mind can go back to
the time when every sign in town
that was not printed on stone or
cut in marble in the sidewalk,
would appear in the wrong place
in the morning, and you can recall
how the long-faoed citizens who
could not see any fun in such
monkey work,, snid those boys
would all fetch up in slate prison.
"We have watched the state prison
records for a quarter of a century,
and not a single name of one of
those old boys is recorded in any
prison, but we can point out fif
teen of them who occup' high
position in all branches of business.
There arc lawyers, as good as the
state can produce, among those
nocturnal menagerie organizers
and smoke-house movers of the
olden time. There is a judge of a
western, state who used to make a
specialty of putting zebra stripes
on a white dog with a black brush.
His decisions are said to be
marked with no evidence that he
ever worked half the night to car
ry the northwest corner of r.
smokehouse around a block to
have it ready in the morning.
There is a capitalist living in this
city,twho helped place a 200 pound
wooden boot, stolen from the
front of a shoe store, upon a school
house at Whitewater one night,
but the exercise did him good,
and nobody was
A man was carrying a coon he
had caught when he met three lit
tle boys in the road. All of them
said excitedly, "Mister, give me
that coon, give me that coon, give
me that coou mister?" "Well,
boys, I'll tell you what I will do.
If you will tell me what party you
belong to and why, I'll give it to
the boy who gives the best reason
for his faith." "I'm a Republican,
because that party saved the
Union," said one. 5tl'm a Green
backer, because that party is in
favor of plenty of mone3r." When
the time for the third boy came, he
said: "I'm a Democrat, 'case-I
want thecbon." Arsio Orleans
A thousand "million dollars is

The agriculture of Western Ore
gon will soon be governed by
different conditions. The pro-,
ducts of this region will be re
quired to supply the wants of a
city of one hundred thousand pop
ulation, and other business points,
on Puget Sound, and the Columbia
will require as much mor. It is
within the reason to believe that a
quarter of a million population of
cities in Western Oregon and
Washington will have to be fed
within"" ten years from this date.
It shall be the aim of our agricul
ture to supply the needs of this
home market so thoroughly as to
leave no room for California pro
ducts to find sale. At the present
time the carrying of products from
California does much to support
the line of steamers between San
Francisco and Portland. Wo im
port butter and cheese by the ton
twice a week; fruits and vegeta
bles, dried and canned products,
manufactured products of many
kinds that could be grown and
put up here are brought here by
hundreds of tons, and in return
we send them the money received
for our staples wheat and wool.
A condition cf things that should

A London cable special says:
The reneral feeling throughout
Europe is of real uneasiness. It
is felt that the relations of the
great powers are daily growing
more uncertain and dangerous and
that the universal strain cannot be
much longer sustained. The
foreign policy of France has no
part in producing this situation,
but all diplomatists look with anx
iety to the Balkan peninsula and a
growing probability of a rupture
between Ptussia and Austria.
In the mean time Prince Bismarck
is maturing and strenghtening his
great alliance, which has 1 - its
first object the relief of Germany
from her intolerable military bur
dens and for its sec-Hid general
trannuiiity of Europe. It is not
probable that .Mtiier can be at
tained without a struggle, but a
swift and decisive contest in the
east, from which France could at
present be excluded, would have
no terrors for either Germany or

tory of this road in 1803, when he
commissioned Lewis and Clarke
to make a reconnoissance across
the continent to the mouth of the
Columbia river. .-Captain Mullau

tfon he commissioned Governor
Stevens to make the survey of the
northern route to the Pacific. This
road will do the carrvinjr trade of
fifty millions of people before - its
future history will end.
